Navaratri Celebrations

ನವರಾತ್ರಿ ಆಚರಣೆಗಳು

The word Navratri is derived from a Sanskrit word that translates ‘Nava’ as nine and ‘Ratri’ as night. Each day is dedicated to one of the nine avatars of goddess Durga (namely Shailputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kaalratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri) and every day has a colour significance associated with it. The festival symbolises the victory of good over evil. It is believed that goddess Durga fought with demon Mahishasur (who represents egoistism) for nine days and the final day, when the demon was beheaded by her, is called Vijay Dashmi.
